Joe sez: Inspired by a rock hard marshmallow we got for hot chocolate with the kids then forgot about. After the line “Marshmallow like rocks” the rest flowed. The lack of the first person singular is deliberate.
Jon sez: Joe sent these words a few days ago. Being desperate to get a song up today, I figured I could turn it into a quick 12-bar blues, which became a big band blues when the answering horn line in the verses came to me at lunch today. I'm counting it as an instrumental hook.
The vocal on the verses turned into Tom Waits because it was 1 AM and my throat was dry and I was tired, so I decided to just use it, and do all the verses first, then drink some water. It was almost scary.
Tech: Logic drummer (Curtis), Midi piano and bass, NI Session Horns. No quantizing.
